 <I'm sorry to report that Al Superczynski passed away this morning in
 Little Rock, Arkansas after experiencing an allergic reaction. Many of you
 know" Super Al" from his many contributions to a wide range of modeling
 activities, including the Alps Decal groups, the Airline groups, Nostalgia
 groups, RMS, and Internet Modeler - to list just a few.
 Al was about camaraderie, and was exceptionally generous in sharing his
 expertise and friendship. He will certainly be missed after making such a
 mark on our hobby and in the lives of those who knew him. I will be
 attending his memorial service and would be happy to pass any comments to
 his wife and family.

That is just terrible terrible news to hear. He will be greatly missed,
I had enjoyed reading his always well thought out and often very

You and a lot of us, Rob.

Although most of the original rms folks moved on long ago, Al always stayed
here, a testament to his good humor, his supreme patience and his
never-ending willingness to share.

It was great to meet him on this forum, and then have the pleasure of his
company at recent IPMS events. A sly fox with with a constant chuckle and a
huge heart.

Please tell them that there are dozens, if not hundreds, of people who
never even met Al personally who are truly sorry to hear of his passing
and who will miss him for years to come.  People like me.

I can only second that.

Only met Al once, in the IPMS meet in Orlando, oh, eight years or so
ago. Very good man, friendly, both in person and online.

He will indeed be missed.

Farewell, Al.

Very sad.  You can tell a lot about a person from their newsgroup
posting. Al was a great guy.

I too am one of the many who never met Al, but have read hundreds, if not
thousands of his posts, and feel like I know him.
He has always been quick to help when he could...which was often. The news
of his passing comes as a shock, and he will be sorely missed in this little
community.
Please pass on our condolences to his family.

And me.

I've been looking through a few of Al's "Old Kit Corner" reviews on Internet
Modeler. I've had a bit of a sad smile over the way he signed off his
columns: "Build what YOU like, the way YOU want to".

Excellent advice, Al.  Thanks for everything.

A sad day indeed.  RIP, AL.......  When I got back into this hobby a
year or so ago and asked for help on this board, Al was the first to
jump in and guide me in the right direction.  He will be missed by
everyone.
